Re-posting as a warning ,a post I saw on Facebook. What would you do???


So my wife goes to a wine store yesterday. When she went in the door a little girl looked up at her and said,

"where's my daddy?" I guess daddy walked off with the store clerk to inspect something. My wife said he was nowhere nearby. That kind of stuff bothers me. I don't trust people enough to let my kids stroll too far from my sight. Glad my wife found that little girl and not some sicko predator.

An optomist may not get there any faster, but he'll enjoy the trip more If you believe you can, you can --- and if you can't, at least you believed you could!

 This father should never take his eyes off his daughter. The sheer amount of children and young adults that are brought into sex trafficking monthly is very disturbing. In any given month, around 12,400 people in Georgia are bought and sold into trafficking. Around 100 teen girls are sexually exploited each night in Georgia, and generally, it occurs around three times a night, per victim.

22 years working in a grocery store and I can't tell you the number of times I've seen kids wandering alone, left alone in a buggy,  INFANTS left unattended in a buggy, kids standing up in the seat part of the buggy with it about to tip over and no parent around, purse's left OPEN and alone in a buggy while the woman is off looking at something........honestly, it's a wonder there aren't more crimes in stores.

I see kids wandering by themselves from time to time. I always stay close by until a parent shows up. Sometimes I’ve had to help them find their mom. I don’t get it. I have grandchildren I never, ever leave hem alone.

And I’ve let my daughter and my oldest grandson know that Atlanta is the main artery for sex trafficking. No young person is immune from being kidnapped and becoming a sex salve.

I am not taking up for the dad in the OP's post. But it reminded me of how I trained my son not to walk away when I was looking at things in the store. He was the worse. He was about 4 yrs long past the age when a child should be minding a parent. Every chance he got he snuck off in the store. I couldn't concentrate for watching him. He climbed out of the buggy constantly.

It had been a particularly trying day. He was, as usual, doing his own thing as dad and I shopped. I had finally had enough, His dad was just turning to drag him back when I caught his hand and said I'm done let him go.


I told my husband to follow me. We moved over to where he could no longer see us if he turned around. We proceeded to hide and watch. After about 5 minutes he starts looking and looking and looking. We had an eye on him the entire time. All of a sudden you could see him very panicked, looking around. He opens his mouth to scream and has a full-fledged panic attack. Loses his breath falls on the floor and turns blue. 


From that day on I never had to worry about him wandering away in a store, he was glue, never took his eyes off me in any public place.


That may seem horrible and cruel to some. I never did anything near as bad to my kids as what they would have suffered as consequences in the big bad world. that is what parents reluctant to discipline don't seem to realize. The tragedy is when kids suffer the very worse consequences of the reluctance to discipline.

As far as releasing my name here, it's not going to happen.  There have been people here who found someone's given name and then found where they worked and made things difficult for them - all because they didn't like them here because of their political opinions.

It's sad the way kids have to grow up these days. I remember growing up my mom would tell me "Go outside and play" the only rule being be inside when the street lights come on.
